Corsair announces two new Graphite Series full-tower cases

CES 2014 - Corsair is on a rampage today, unveiling its new AX1500i PSU and Hydro Series H105 cooler, but now we have two new cases to discuss with you. The new cases are part of Corsair's Graphite Series, known as the Graphite Series 760T and 730T.

Both the Graphite Series 760T and 730T cases are full-tower cases, with the 760T available in either black or Arctic White, and has loads of room for your high-end components. It has nine expansion slots which is great for multi-GPU setups, as well as six 3.5- or 2.5-inch HDD mounts, which can also be relocated to any of the four separate mounting locations - or if you're like me - you can remove them completely.

The 760T has one panel nearly transparent - which will look striking on your desk - and the other is opaque, so that you can peek inside of your rig. Both panels are hinged to the rear, allowing them to swing open to provide complete access to the innards of your PC. We also have two LED-lit AF140L 140mm cooling fans at the front, and another at the rear taking care of cooling duties inside of the Graphite Series 760T case. Liquid cooling is encouraged with the 760T, with it being capable of housing a 360mm top radiator and 280mm front mount.

TweakTown image news/3/4/34645_01_corsair_outs_its_ax1500i_psu_a_psu_for_the_enthusiast.jpg

 

Corsair's new AX1500i is capable of powering 4-way NVIDIA and AMD multi-GPU solutions, with power to spare - something that can't be said for most of the high-wattage PSUs on the market today. Corsair's AX1500i has 94% efficiency at 50% load at 115V, features 8 PCI-E cables to drive 4 GPUs, a custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm low-noise fan, and a Silent Zero RPM Fan Mode, which drives the AX1500i at 450W without the fan spinning, as well as "ultra-quiet operation" at full 1500W output.

 

The high-end PC components maker has provided a brilliant 7-year warranty on its AX1500i, ensuring you'll be fine with it for nearly a decade, and a $449.99 MSRP. It will be available in Q2 2014.

TweakTown image exclusive_lian_li_wants_your_feedback_on_its_upcoming_pc_a51_chassisTweakTown image exclusive_lian_li_wants_your_feedback_on_its_upcoming_pc_a51_chassis

 

Lian Li has pushed the PSU down into the front, which is a weird, yet nice change, and allows the case to be a little smaller than usual. Even with this little shrink, it will still pack a punch in terms of the hardware that will fit inside. As for the look, it's a beautiful anodized black, which not only looks great, but feels great to the touch. Inside we have a black and red interior, which looks slick.
